Dividend payout Ratio Formula
Cash Dividend = Total amount of Dividend payments by a firm
Net income = Net income as per income statement
The Dividend Payout Ratio (DPR) measures what a company’s payout to investors in the form of dividends.
For example, if a company paid out $1 per share in annual dividends and had $4 in EPS, the DPR would be 25%. ($1 / $4 = 25%)
